The Department of Applied Mathematics at the University of Colorado, Boulder is seeking a Postdoctoral Research Associate to work in the Climate Process Team (CPT) on Ocean Transport and Eddy Energy, which is a high profile collaboration involving multiple institutions including New York University, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, Princeton, the University of Chicago, the National Center for Atmospheric Research, NOAA’s Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Lab, Columbia University, and Brown University among others. The role of the CU postdoc will be to develop and implement new subgrid-scale parameterizations and to assess the accuracy of existing parameterizations in the ocean component (MOM6) of CESM3 at non-eddying and eddy-permitting resolutions. The CU postdoc will be directly advised by Ian Grooms ( at CU, and will work closely with members of NCAR’s Ocean Section, as well as with the entire CPT. The research will include mathematical modeling, diagnostic analysis of simulation results, and running CESM3 simulations. Information about the broader project and related positions can be found at

Minimum requirements include a Ph.D. in earth sciences, climate modeling, fluid dynamics, applied mathematics, computational science, physics, or a closely related field. For full consideration please apply by March 15, 2023. Applications must be submitted through
